The following is from Michael Geer, President of PA Family Institute.
On the left, that’s our second annual Pennsylvania March for Life, held yesterday on the Capitol steps here in Harrisburg. It was an absolutely amazing day, with crowd estimates of about 6,000 – even more than last year’s rally! Some veteran state lawmakers told us it was the largest Capitol rally they’d ever seen.
On the right is the pro-abortion rally held this morning and organized months ago by Planned Parenthood, the ACLU, and others as a counter to our PA March for Life. They had less than 80 attendees. Yes, less than 80!
The abortion lobby even hired a public relations firm out of Texas to plan their rally and boost attendance. Their prepared remarks included speaking to “a sea of faces” as their expectations were to see many in attendance. Drop in the bucket is what comes to mind.
Meanwhile, the day before was a pro-life groundswell. There was no hired PR firm for the Pennsylvania March for Life. What we had was you, and thousands of others helping us spread the word about this historic pro-life rally and march – the first state March for Life anywhere since the overturn of Roe v. Wade. And wow did pro-life Pennsylvanians ever show up.
This picture above of the Pennsylvania March for Life doesn’t do it justice. What a blessing I had to view from the stage the waves of people in attendance, from those on the steps to the Capitol to those filling in the sides – and getting some shade from the trees. I’m told we have some drone footage coming soon that will give a fuller picture. I can’t wait to share it with you, and other highlights of the day.
The November mid-term elections are close yet far away. pro-life voters have much to do to ensure pro-life and pro-liberty candidates emerge victorious on election night.
If the scary agenda from the Biden Administration does not concern voters, what will? Their plan was clear all along to promote abortion demand despite Roe’s defeat by the Supreme Court this past summer. The administration and its allies in congress are out of touch with the American people on all levels.
There are many promising candidates that can help ensure a red wave and control both houses which has happened throughout history depending on who occupies the White House. When it happens, Biden is a lame duck heading into a potential re-election bid, despite poor health and low poll numbers.
Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, the question looms on who will be Tom Wolf’s successor. Josh Shapiro has had ads left and right on television and even youtube. Doug, where are you? Do you not want to win the race?
Pennsylvania has held the blueprint in the pro-life debate, especially under the leadership of the late Bob Casey Sr who led the commonwealth in the 80s.
Pro-Life bills were passed on the state level, yet were vetoed or not enforced.
If voters can do something now, they can start by educating the community on the horrors of abortion, fetal development, and sharing the stories of those who walked away from the diabolical industry.
Pro-lifers, are you ready to step up your game? Take an active role in securing the pro-life majority now in Pennsylvania and Washington.
